Collagen gives support to almost every part of your body. So it’s easy to imagine that you might want to be sure to have enough! PatchAid Collagen Patches have collagen, components of collagen, and nutrients that are related. The PatchAid Collagen Plus Vitamin Patch and Glucosamine and Chondroitin Topical Plus Vitamin Patch may be good collagen eye patches for you if your doctor agrees.
Health Benefits of Collagen
Collagen is throughout your body. You may know it as the cushioning in your joints. But that’s not the only place it is found. It is also in these parts of the body.
Collagen is also part of the eyes. It helps form parts of the outer surface of the eye. The sclera and cornea are examples. A collagen eye patch is formulated to contain collagen or collagen-supporting compounds.
Collagen is also needed for these functions.
- Repairing damaged tissue, such as after an injury or hard workout.
- Allowing your immune response to be strong, including keeping in mind that the skin is a barrier against infection.
- Allowing cells to work together.
A collagen deficiency can lead to concerns!
Where Do You Get Collagen From?
Your body naturally makes collagen. It needs certain amino acids found in proteins, along with nutrients such as vitamin C and zinc.
You can stimulate your body to produce more collagen by eating high-protein foods, such as eggs, fish, chicken, meat, and dairy products. Legumes, or beans, peas, and lentils, also have the amino acids that you need to make collagen.
Supporting nutrients, such as vitamin C and zinc, are also needed. Many fruits and vegetables are good sources of vitamin C. Oranges, bell peppers, strawberries, broccoli, and spinach are examples. Many types of shellfish, whole grains, beans, and nuts have zinc.
Who Needs More Collagen?
Some people may have lower levels of collagen. These are some ways collagen may be lower.
- As you get older.
- With too much exposure to the sun without sunscreen.
- If you skimp on sleep.
- If you do not stay physically active.
- If you smoke.
- If you only eat plant-based foods
Ask your doctor if a collagen patch may be a good idea for you based on your situation.
PatchAid Collagen Patches
If you have concerns about your collagen levels, ask your doctor about PatchAid Collagen Patches. The Glucosamine and Chondroitin Topical Plus Vitamin Patch has building blocks for collagen, as well as vitamin C and a proprietary blend with holy basil and other herbal supplements. The PatchAid Collagen Plus Vitamin Patch also has glucosamine, chondroitin, and vitamin C, as well as Collagen Types I, II, and III, and vitamin D.
Collagen Patches versus Pills
You could take pills to get collagen, but you don’t have to. Collagen eye patches are easy to use. You just peel off the backing and stick the patch onto your skin. You can leave it on for up to 8 hours. During that time, you can exercise and take a shower because the patch stays on you and is flexible.
Taking vitamins can lead to an upset stomach. On the other hand, patches have no chance of causing an upset stomach as a side effect because the active ingredients are transported transdermally or across the skin. Patches may also have more nutrients or a wider variety than pills. Talk to your doctor about collagen patches. They may be right for you!
